For years, LYDIA saw many children enter into the child welfare system for reasons that could have been prevented. Determined to see more children protected and families strengthened, LYDIA Home founded Safe Families for Children in 2003. Safe Families for Children surrounds families in crisis with caring, compassionate community. We are a volunteer-driven nonprofit that provides hope and support to families in our local communities.
Our vision is to create a world where children are safe and families transformed through radically compassionate communities. Our mission is to host vulnerable children and create extended family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by compassion to keep children safe and families intact.
